Rutgers Scheduled for $2.5 M In Security Upgrades

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Nearly 700 video surveillance cameras will be installed at the New Brunswick-Piscataway campus of Rutgers University this summer.

The entire project will cost approximately $2.5 million and should be completed by September. In addition to the 100 cameras that are already in place at some of the school’s dorms and parking lots, the new units will be installed at all 146 dormitories. All of the cameras will be monitored from the campus’ new public safety building, which is scheduled to open soon. Signs will be posted, informing students, faculty, staff and visitors that their activities are being monitored.

In addition to the CCTV system, the dorm doors are being upgraded so they can alert police when there is improper usage.
